The Role: Imagine leading a team of account executives selling a solution that will predict for your customers who is going to buy, what they’ll buy and when. As the Director of our Enterprise team at 6sense, your leadership will be instrumental to our growth as we build upon the success we’ve had delivering predictions for enterprises like Cisco, Dell, Lenovo, BlueJeans and Symantec. We will trust you to hire the best of the best, develop our future sales leaders, evangelize 6sense, run your team like a CEO, and consistently exceed quarterly and annual targets. This is not your average start-up; your team will close large deals. And will be rewarded very well for doing so.
The Company: The 6sense Account Based Orchestration Platform helps revenue teams identify and close more opportunities by putting the power of AI, big data and machine learning behind every member of the B2B revenue team, empowering them to uncover anonymous buying behavior, prioritize fragmented data to focus on accounts in market, and engage resistant buying teams with personalized, multi-channel, multi-touch campaigns. 6sense helps revenue teams know everything they need to know about their buyers so they can easily do anything they need to do to generate more opportunities, increase deal size, get into opportunities sooner, compete and win more often.
Here are the traits you exhibit as a leader:
Customer-focused – You know there’s nothing more important than long-term customer success.
History of success, driven to win – You have a track record of building teams that not only end up on top, but the kind of teams reps would die to be a part of.
Emotionally intelligent – You know that your success depends on your commitment to develop people. You are a natural coach; you know that salespeople aren’t all motivated by the same thing, you know what makes each person tick.
Balance strategy and tactics – You’re equally adept at setting strategy as you are getting in to the depths of a deal, a presentation or geeking out in excel.
Accountable, metrics-driven – You own the results for your team, lean on metrics to succeed, have no problem doing whatever it takes to get it done. You have high expectations of everyone on the team.
Collaborate and win as a team – You compete, but above that you collaborate, you share what is working, you help the company win, you take on projects outside of helping your team close business.
Trustworthy – You know that without trust, success is short-lived (not to mention the kind of relationships that make work meaningful). You have no tolerance for shady tactics. Your reputation makes you the kind of leader people want to work with again and again.
